Santa Fe Grande Chili Peppers

500 - 700 Scovilles. Also known as the yellow hot chile and the guero chile. Approximately 5 inches long and ripen from greenish-yellow, to orange-yellow to red. The flavor ranges from mild to moderate, although some can be hot, but not compared to something more traditional like the jalapeno pepper.

It is also known by name as yellow hot chili pepper and the guero chili pepper.

The peppers start as a pale yellow color before maturing to a bright orange or to a fiery red about 75 days after transplanting. They are somewhat sweet to the taste and great for pickling.

Santa Fe Grande is of the Capsicum annuum family, produced in the southwest. The peppers grow upright on 24" plants and have a mild pungency. The plants typically produce 20-50 chili peppers.
